Af Robert Parker
"And one of the most impressive wines I was able to taste from the appellation, the knockout 2012 Rasteau Les Esqueyrons checks in as a blend of 55% concrete aged Grenache and 45% barrel-aged Syrah. It offers gorgeously pure creme de cassis, black raspberry, violets, wild herbs and hints of toast in its full-bodied, seamless and layered personality. While a big, rich and textured effort, it is perfectly balanced and stays focused and clean. Don’t miss it. Drink 2014-2024.

Run by Jean-Pierre Bertrand, with consulting help from Philippe Cambie, this top-notch estate covers over 70 acres, mostly in Rasteau.
(93-95) Points

"Violet. Brusende sødme stiger op fra glasset sammen med røde kirsebær og solid volume. Virkelig lækker duft og stor kraft. Trænoter kommer til. Smagen har træ, mørke kirsebær og fast frugtsyre med bittertoner og mørk frugt – hele tiden pakket med trænoter. Sødmen følger godt med hele vejen ud i spids der slutter med bittertoner og tanniner. En vin der endnu ikke er moden men har kræfter og potens. Gemmes et par år eller iltes nogle timer inden servering." 91 point

Domaine Grand Nicolet

The first hectare of vines has been planted in 1875.
The cellar was built on the estate in 1926; first private cellar of the appellation at the time!
From 1930, the production of cereals is progressively dismissed and Joseph Nicolet started developping the vineyard and planted some Grenache noir and Carignan.
That was the start of the Domaine Grand Nicolet !

In 1999, Jean Pierre Bertrand, passionate by the viticulture started running the estate on his own, and started bottling his best wines.

The viticulture and vinification are very traditional, Jean-Pierre started step by step to give up any chemical treatment and to plough the entire vineyard all year round.
Here, the ancestral and traditional methods are permanently facing modern viticulture so as to produce strong character and authentic wines and yet contemporary of their time.

The Winery produces today a beautiful range of Côtes du Rhône, Côtes du Rhône Villages Rasteau and Vin Doux Naturel red.

The wines show you what the terroir is in Rasteau! They are generous and powerful, with spicy notes, black fruits and "garrigue". They represent proudly the Rhône Valley.
